I like Richard Osman and like many, was tremendously looking forward to this book. To say I'm disappointed would be an an understatement - the story was flat, characters uninteresting, humour perplexingly lacking. It is the exact opposite of what you'd imagine a Richard Osman book would be! Don't fall for the hype and save your time and money for something more worthwhile.

Dreadful Detective

Was enjoying the book until the detective character popped up. The author gave him no personality and quite frankly he came across as conceited and unlikeable. Why any woman would be interested in a man like that is beyond me. It's a shame because I liked everything else, but the so called romance was just too juvenile and one dimensional, even for a light fluffy book such as this. Would have been happy to follow this entire series, but ultimately couldn't even finish the first book.
